Question For those of us with heart rate monitors

in interval training/circuits, what ranges are we trying to hit? When we go for the break between circuits, how do we know that our heart rates are low enough? I find myself getting very winded and not quite at full power when I start a new circuit in most workouts and wondering if that is the way it is supposed to be or if I need a longer break! I figured with the science behind STS and using the 1RM calculations, there must be a target range for the cardio too.! Thanks in advance! I'm loving the workouts.

This is a great question, I wonder this too. I find when doing Cathe cardio I'm practically red lining through pretty much the whole workout. Is this how it is supposed to be?

I'd be curious about this as well. My DH just bought me a heart rate monitor and I really am clueless about all the zones.

I find the opposite- that only interval running makes my heart rate really go up; DVD workouts, even Cathe's, rarely get me to even 80% of my max heart rate. The exception is when I go to high impact step, and that's bad for my knees.

Morningstar:

If you can do Cathe workouts without getting beyond 80% of your max heart rate you must have the strongest heart in the world. Even Cathe is breathing in such a way in some of her workouts that indicate she is beyond what I would think is 80% (KPC comes to mind). I am unable to breathe in most Cathe cardio workouts but it has certainly increased my endurance like nothing else. But good for you for being so strong. I hope I get there one day.

Interval workouts like the IMaxes are cardio based so you want to keep your HR 60-80% of your max for the step portions and ramp it up to 70-90% of your max for the blast portions.

Circuit workouts are not intervals per se; weight workouts with cardio like LIC or Cardio & Weights are what is generally thought of as a circuit workout. Your HR will likely lower during the weight portion and go up during the cardio portions but there isn't really a set range for any of it. HTH
